The Killbuck District Boy Scouts of America held its spring Camporee at the Wooster campus recently.

Some 85 scouts and 40 leaders attended the three-day event. Scouts camped in the Secrest Arboretum and toured STEM stations on Electron microscopy where they viewed insects and viruses; pollinators; wheat research; and geocaching. They also toured the quasar energy group facility to learn about the conversion of waste materials into energy and they learned about native plants and horticulture in the Secrest Arboretum. 

The scouts also did a service project in the Arboretum where they straightened signs, pulled weeds and provided other assistance.
